Rating: 🍿🍿🍿.5

Season Four of “Outlander” continues the story of time-traveling 20th century doctor Claire Fraser and her 18th century Highlander husband Jamie Fraser as they try to make a home for themselves in colonial America. We find the Frasers in North Carolina, in a place called Fraser’s Ridge at yet another turning point in history — the cusp of the American Revolution. As Claire and Jamie build their life together in the rough and dangerous backcountry of North Carolina, they must negotiate a tenuous loyalty to the current British ruling class, despite Claire’s knowledge of the bloody rebellion to come. Along the way, the Frasers cross paths with notorious pirate and smuggler Stephen Bonnet in a fateful meeting that will come back to haunt the Fraser family. Meanwhile, in the 20th century, things heat up between Claire and Jamie’s daughter, Brianna Randall and Roger Wakefield, the historian who helped search for Jamie in the past. But as they grow closer, the young couple realize they have very different ideas about the future of their relationship. However, when Roger and Brianna search for proof that Brianna’s parents reunited in the 18th century, a shocking discovery makes them both consider following in Claire’s footsteps.

The Television Tag || Shows I’m trash for

Finally it is Friday and I am slowly becoming a human/non-zombie again! Just like previously I had something planned for today’s TV Friday but because I was in and out of consciousness this entire week and weekend I didn’t get a chance to get the post in a position where I would be comfortable sharing it with all of you. So what are we gonna do? We are gonna do a tag.

God save the Queen and God save the tag.

I found this tag on Kayley Hyde’s Channel on YouTube and thought it could easily be adapted to the Blogging world and as I am a self-proclaimed TV junkie, I thought it would be super fun to do! Now,  if it turns out that this tag has already been adapted to Blogs and I am just super late to the party–which lets be honest, is most of the time– then we are going to go on with life as if nothing happened and I just joined the band wagon of fun. yeah? Yeah.  Continue reading “The Television Tag || Shows I’m trash for”

Did The Show Rise, Rise To The Occasion?

Rise 
101. “Pilot”
Grade: C+

As a self-proclaimed theatre nerd, I was intrigued after hearing the plot for the new show Rise and was all about to give them my money after hearing that it was connected to those who worked on Hamilton. So to say I had high expectations for the premiere would be an understatement. Created by Jason Katmis (Friday Night Lights, Parenthood), the show is based on the true events of a high school drama department in the working community of a rural town in Pennsylvania, where the football team is like the sacred cow and theatre is like your aunt’s famous duck pudding.  Continue reading “Did The Show Rise, Rise To The Occasion?”
